One benefit of being in between jobs here: I have the time to sit-in on unusual lectures and workshops. Like this acro-yoga class I just started at the Cedar and Fir Yoga Studio here.

I had vaguely heard of acro-yoga before and knew I had to try it when I saw the flyer. It’s a true out of body experience, the closest you’ll get to weightlessness or flying. I only wish my partner would do this form of yoga with me. It has me getting rather intimate with strangers instead. His loss!

Some of the positions remind me of what we called “Superman” when we were kids. Our dad would put his feet on our stomaches, raise his legs and lift us flying into the air. I used to do it to my sister Carolyn too. There may have been an accident or two.

These inverted poses really release pressure from your spine and act as traction for your neck. I encourage everyone to try acro-yoga if it’s offered in your area. Most cities should. Let me know about your experiences if you’ve tried it.
